Rated 5 out of 5 by from Robert Bateman, an artistic genius This is a lovely biography of Canadian born Robert Bateman, a very famous artist, who paints the natural world around him. His paintings are so realistic that they look like actual photographs. He is gifted beyond measure. From a little boy he loves to observe nature, study its shapes, textures and colours and then reproduce his findings in his sketch book and then onto canvas. He uses his extraordinary talents to promote environmental issues and to highlight the wonder and splendor of our Mother Earth. The storyline is simple and the artwork throughout is outstanding. The book encourages the reader to open his eyes and connect with his surroundings. The book inspires readers to get involved and protect our cosmos to their utmost ability. Bateman's paintings are a true celebration of our magnificent planet that we call home. The author includes a more detailed biography of Bateman's life at the back of the book for those desiring to know more about his artistic genius and his advocation for all things natural. I highly recommend this book.
